When you eat at Mescladís, you’re not going to a regular restaurant. This one is run by an NGO whose main interest is to reintegrate both newly arrived immigrants, and people who are having problems getting a job, to society. During the weekdays, the restaurant is as busy as a beehive, with dozens of “cooks in the making” going in and out the kitchen – nevertheless, expect good service and fresh and seasonal food.
Every day, they offer a menu that changes according to what is available and fresh on the market. Besides that, they regularly make great quiches and empanadas (Argentinean pastries filled) with meat, chicken, eggplant, corn and vegetable ratatouille.
A full menu on a weekday is less than € 13. They can also arrange for a special meals for groups or even for a birthday party with a cooking lesson. Their terrace is one of the most wanted in the area, especially during spring and summer, even if it’s not open until very late. Also, in and around the restaurant there are always pieces of art regarding the process of the neighbourhood and the new inhabitants that live there. So, do your good deed of the day… and enjoy fully it!
